49. Poor phrasing on my part. Emphasis on put, as in - all things in motion MUST be put in motion.

Except God, which doesn't need to be put in motion.

Anyway, Dawkins wrote an all audience book on the way he sees the lack of evidence for any God. You accuse him of using, and I quote
"lies and ignorance" when in fact you just don't like the way he dismantled Aquinas' argument and didn't get into a more "inside" philosophy debate showcasing Kant.

Here he is actually addressing one of the main christian philosophers, not going after the loony, low hanging fundamentalist fruit he is often accused of.

So I really don't see the justification of the attacks on him, other than the target of his polemic.
